Batters Could Improve in the Blink of an Eye!

Batters Could Improve in the Blink of an Eye!

One particular area of discovery has caught our attention at APEX Brain Centers because it deals with high-level performance improvement. When people think of brain-related performance improvement it’s usually in areas such as helping CEOs and computer programmers improve their focus and mental agility, or helping an athlete maintain concentration for longer periods of time (all things we’ve done successfully). This latest opportunity though is something far more finely-tuned and exacting. We’re referring to helping the batter in a baseball game quickly recognize and respond to different pitches.

Let’s put this in perspective. Baseball pitcher might pitch the ball at speed from around 65-80 mph curveball, highest speeds of 95 mph or higher. The ball travels around 60 feet from the pitcher’s hand to the plate, so the batter has less than a second to reactive a relatively slow 50 mph pitch gives the batter a reaction time of only 0.825 seconds, and 100 mph. In that time, the batter must try to identify the pitch, estimate its trajectory, decide if it will reach him in the strike zone, and if so, adjust his swing dynamics for the best possible opportunity of successful contact with his bat. All in quite literally the blink of an eye (the human eye blinks at between 0.3 and 0.4 seconds).

It’s not difficult to imagine that even a very small improvement in the batter’s mental acuity and visual response time. When you address the process of brain training using the kind of objective clinical methods used by APEX Brain Centers. Plan a very specific improvement protocol, and often just a few days later measure the resulting changes in brain activity.

We already know how to do the clinical part so we’re excited to see the results on the field. For us, that will be a real home run (pun intended) – Batters Could Improve in the Blink of an Eye!
